Christophe Antoine of Talend will demonstrate Talend's integration with Hadoop, specifically with respect to managing ETL with Hive.
== BIO ==
Christophe Antoine joined Talend on May 2006 as a R&D Engineer to develop the first public release of Talend Open Studio (released in October 2006). He worked especially on the metadata management and metadata wizards as R&D project manager.
Then Talend and the sales team needed to be supported by a technical guy during the sales meeting and product demonstrations and Christophe was one of the first moving from the R&D department to become a Talend Trainer, then a Consultant and finally a Pre-Sales person. Like he likes to say « I was the first who wanted to shave my geek’s beard; but obviously it wasn’t so difficult because I’m beardless :)
He helped in the opening of the US office in 2007 to recruit technical people and present our solution to the first US Talend’s customer. He transfered a part of the French knowledge in Talend technology to our famous US consultants.
Prior to Talend he worked for Valoris/Sopra (System Integrator); he was in charge of the development and the architecture of the achatpublic.com platform (Dematerialization of French public work contract procedures); and he was also in charge of the maintenance of the Issuer Club, a financial application developed for Euronext (prior to become NYSE-Euronext).
Christophe is also a Computer Science teacher for the CNAM (National Arts & Metiers Conservatory) and teaches Dynamic Web technology (PHP/MySQL/Java development) and Talend technology of course :)
